Welcome James Scales!

Hello students & families,


It is an honor and privilege to be selected to help in Mr. Holt’s classroom for the next few weeks. I must say first and foremost that you all already have an outstanding teacher, who embodies an excellent approach to his classroom. My only objective is to ensure that same standard of excellence that is already in the Sevier 8th grade social studies department, as well as the school itself.


Secondly, to give you a background on myself, I recently just finished my Master of Education degree in curriculum and instruction from King University this past December. Prior to this, I also completed my undergraduate requirements from King with a concentration in political science & history. I have been an employee of KCS the past two years as the 9th grade boys basketball coach, and have also worked as an instructional assistant.


Moreover, I look forward to working with everyone. I hope that my colleagues would say that my style of teaching is resplendent, thought provoking, and most importantly, a secure classroom where students feel free to learn. It is an honor to be apart of the Warrior family!

Kingsport City Schools Accepting Zoning and Tuition Applications for 2019-2020 School Year

KINGSPORT, Tenn.Kingsport City Schools will begin accepting Zoning and Tuition Applications for students in grades K–12 for the 2019-2020 school year beginning Friday, March 1, 2019.


Parents who would like to request their child attend a different city school instead of one for which their child is zoned, must apply for a zoning exception. Parents of students who are not legal residents of the City of Kingsport must submit a tuition application to attend Kingsport City Schools. Parents or legal guardians must apply annually for their child’s tuition and zoning status, even if they attended Kingsport City Schools during the preceding school year.

Applications can be found online at k12k.com via the "Parents" tab, 2019-20 Zoning and Tuition Application link or if need be, in-person at the KCS Administrative Support Center, 400 Clinchfield Street, second floor, downtown Kingsport. Application deadline is April 30, 2019.

The following are excerpts from the Kingsport Board of Education’s policies and procedures for zoning and tuition:
  • Parents or legal guardians must apply annually for their child’s tuition and zoning status.
  • Students who are not legal residents of the City of Kingsport shall pay tuition charges as approved annually by the Board of Education.
  • Failure to pay tuition will disqualify a student’s application for the next year.
  • Tuition students are accepted and zoning exceptions are granted only if current enrollment permits.
  • The system does not provide bus transportation for tuition or zoning exception students, except in specific circumstances.
Criteria for zoning exceptions are as follows:
  • Documented medical reasons
  • Child care availability
  • An expected move to a different zone
  • Specialized school programs
  • A fifth or an eighth grade student with a previous zoning exception
  • Documented justifications related to the child’s specific educational experience
The school system utilizes the following order when placing students:

  1. Zoning and tuition for Kingsport City Schools employees and retirees, as well as City of Kingsport employees
  2. Zoning exception reapplications
  3. Siblings of currently enrolled out-of-zone students
  4. New zoning exception applications
  5. Tuition reapplications
  6. Siblings of currently enrolled tuition students
  7. New tuition applications for out-of-district residents

To find out the school for which your child is zoned, please refer to the online School Zones and Street Directory listed under the “School Zones and Street Directory” link under “Parents” at k12k.com, or call the KCS Administrative Support Center at (423) 378.2100.
